Let’s see what’s in the Fall 2018 Vine Oh! box!
Everything was shipped in a large box with the wine bottles packed in the bottom and a smaller, separate box of lifestyle items on top.
As always, I’ll start with the wine and unbox the additional items afterward.
The bottles were packed together in a cardboard wine shipper to protect them in transit.
From Vine Oh!:
New Crush Santa Ynez Valley Riesling delivers a superb balance of ripeness and sweet flavors with aromas of Jasmine, white pepper, lemon zest, dried apricot and a touch of wintergreen notes creating a sweet, delicious finish.
We’ve gotten this bottle in a past Vine Oh! box and my husband thought it was “sweet and fruity”. Wine snobs, we are not. 😉
2016 Mad Love California Zinfandel ($25.99 – on sale for $15!)
From Vine Oh!:
A Mad Love is rare. It’s a passionate love that withstands the test of time.
Mad Love Zinfandel is our rare find that we want to share with you. With aromas of cherry cola, blackberry, baking spice, and cocoa and flavors of raspberry jam, chocolate cake, black tea, this medium bodied wine has a delicious balanced finish. It’s our Mad Love!
Another wine that we’ve gotten in a previous box, this was also sweet and full of bold flavor.
The lifestyle items were all packed into their own Vine Oh! box.
A peek inside!
A paper sleeve held individual information cards for each one of the items.
The card above listed all of the items in the Fall 2018 Oh! For Me! box, along with photos and retail values for each one.
Individual cards went into more details about each product and also included special offers for Vine Oh! subscribers.
When I first lit this candle, I was a little surprised that the scent was more perfume-y than straight up (“sexy”) cinnamon. Then I read the box and discovered that there’s “a bottle of perfume in every candle”. Makes sense! That said, “Sexy Cinnamon” features fragrance notes of natural cinnamon, blonde woods, and aromatic spices. It’s comprised of a soy wax blend and has a burn time of 50 hours. Also, how freakin’ cute is that packaging?!
The Etsy shop behind this planner/calendar is currently “taking a short break”, so I wasn’t able to find any additional info on it (such as page count). While I tend to keep all of my important dates stored on my iPhone, it’s also nice to have a physical copy where the whole family can see what’s scheduled for the week.
Brighten dull, dry skin with this exfoliating sugar balm from Mixture Bath + Body. The nourishing formula includes sugar, shea butter, cocoa seed butter, avocado oil, and rosemary extract to hydrate the skin while it cleanses. It’s cruelty-free and contains absolutely no parabens, sulfates, or phthalates.
Dutch House Caramels ($10)
These traditional, handcrafted gourmet caramel candies are “soft in texture and rich in flavor”. — They’re also HUGE! The package contains four individually wrapped pieces, which are gluten-free and processed in a peanut-free facility.
This 100% neoprene insulated drink sleeve helps to keep bottles & cans cold and your hands warm. It features the phrase “Kindness changes everything” over a colorful floral background.
As always, a nice mix of wine and fun/practical lifestyle items from Vine Oh!! My favorite products this time were the Trapp “Sexy Cinnamon” candle, A Day in the Life planner, and Mixture body scrub. The total retail value of this season’s box was over $133! — Remember, through 9/30 (or while supplies last) you can get $10 Off + a FREE Extra Bottle of wine + a FREE stemless wine glass on any new Oh! For Me! Fall Box subscription order with coupon code “WineYay“. — Just $49.99 + free shipping! A $175+ value!
